At twelve, this young artist began to compose his own songs. “I wrote and sang No to mobile in which I evoke the theme of cyberbullying.

The click during confinement

And it is during the first period of confinement, in 2020, that Houracem went back to composing his songs where we find a touch of variety and French pop. His texts and his songs, he writes and composes them alone!

“In 2020, I heard artists write and perform texts to pay tribute to everyday heroes. I thought that was a great idea. »

Inspired, the nineteen-year-old artist thus composed and sang Thank you. In parallel, he released five other songs. Gradually, he had the idea of ​​making his own album.

I am currently composing a new song which denounces homophobia. I try to tell the story of a homosexual high school student who is insulted and persecuted by his classmates.


And to add: “Today, there are many homosexuals who dare not admit what they are or who they are. And in this song, I mean everyone has the right to be whoever they want. Homophobia makes me angry. »

“No matter what people think of you. You have to know how to be yourself whatever the circumstances. »

An artist torn by his past…

” With Say Mom, I told the story of an adopted child who feels this need to meet his parents. He doesn’t know if they want to see him again. »
